    My Wonderful Day

    Though it's centered on the timeworn cliché of the wise innocent child, Alan Ayckbourn's "My Wonderful Day" is largely entertaining.

    Misalliance

    How would one describe the works of George Bernard Shaw without calling them droll? His brand of whimsy, with its perfectly quotable epigrams, just begs for the label.

    Girls Night: The Musical

    When the whole audience joins in to chant "I Will Survive," you realize that "Girls Night: The Musical" is not just a silly bachelorette-flavored night on the town. It's a rally.

    Groovaloo Freestyle

    Forget that gritty, raw, sassy, often violent aesthetic that you may have come to associate with authentic hip-hop performance.

    Penny Penniworth

    The source material for the 70-minute send-up "Penny Penniworth" is largely mid-Victorian English lit, and the comedic result is priceless.
